($175) Good full, bright ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, black raspberry and tobacco; just this side of roasted. Dense, thick and deep, with superb depth of sweet berries complicated by minerals, sweet butter and tobacco. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length. Comes across as the least refined of these three bottlings in 2002, but boasts compelling depth and richness.

The 2002 Vecina comes from a vineyard not far from the steep hillsides of Harlan Estate, on the western hills of the Mayacamas Mountains overlooking the Oakville corridor and the eastern hillsides. This is a much earthier, spicier, more structured wine, much more masculine, with notes of scorched earth and almost Graves-like smoky, camphor and barbecue notes as well as black fruits galore. With its big, muscular structure and dense opaque/purple color, this wine actually seems younger in its evolution than either the St. Eden or Melbury. It is probably best forgotten for another 5-6 years, with another 30-34 years lifeline potential. It's a sensational wine.

Smooth, rich and polished, with a seductive array of blackberry, currant and black cherry fruit that glides across the palate. This is a complex, deeply concentrated wine with tannins that are ripe and round, even silky for its age. 400 cases made.

Deep purple. Distinct notes of camphor and cassis on the nose and on the palate.. Overwhelming but it all meshes after a couple of hours. Very sweet but well balanced and a pleasure. I actually like it a little cooler than room temp. Beautifully structured wine but a tad too sweet.
